Central Coast Mariners: Can’t stop scoring

Central Coast Mariners won the game, because they scored two goals in the opening 26 minutes.

Macarthur FC: It could’ve been worse

Macarthur FC weren’t at the races in the first half. They were fortunate Filip Kurto made nine saves and that Daniel Arzani changed the momentum of the game in the second half.

Melbourne City: Not their day, despite a fine display

Melbourne City failed to claim three points, even though they had 31 shots!

Melbourne Victory: They showed resilience, character and grit

Perth Glory: A miraculous fightback

Perth Glory went into the half time break trailing 2-nil, but they managed to score two goals in the second half thanks to good substitutions.

Sydney FC: Fell apart

Sydney FC should’ve been winning by more than two goals at half time and they paid the price. They only took one point away from Perth when they should’ve won comfortably.

Western United: A shadow of themselves
